      Mini, a group company of BMW has started the local assembly of the Mini Countryman at the group’s facility at Chennai. This is the first time that Mini is being manufactured outside Europe.

      Price list:-

      Will there be any change in the prices of these once after the European Union's demanded tax reduction is in place ? Or that tax is only for CBU's imported to India ?

      Here is the pricelist for the Mini in Norway. You should understand most of the Norwegian stuff there but the last column, engangsavgift is the tax already included in the total price. The cars sold here are made at the MINI Plant in Oxford. The c heapest modell in norway costs roughly 23,09,776 INR and even cheaper when a teacher earns that money in about 7-8 months. 1 NOK= 9,2 INR.
